Program: 11:30am to 1:30pm
Speaker: Dr. Kristi Brown-Montesano, Chair of Music History and Literature at the Colburn School
Dr. Kristi Brown-Montesano received her Ph.D. in musicology from UC Berkeley, combining her strong interest in both musical performance and scholarly research. Her book The Women of Mozart’s Operas (University of California Press, 2007) offers a detailed study—for students, performers, scholars and opera lovers—of the female characters in the Da Ponte operas as well as The Magic Flute. Dr. Brown-Montesano has presented and published essays on music in contemporary film, opera, trends in marketing classical music and musical culture in late 19th century England.
A passionate “public musicologist,” she has been a frequent lecturer for the Colburn Chamber Music Society, LA Opera’s Opera for Educators seminars and the Salon des Musiques chamber music series. She presented the League seminar on The Tales of Hoffmann last March.
